Finished the metroid design. Wanted to go with a more insectoid inspired design. Was pretty fun to paint.
...bonus coming soon...

Very nice! This portrays Metroids as what they really are instead of the game renders (that almost look cute).

Have you ever seen any metroid that isn't a larva?

Nice. Seems like a cross between insect and forest (it looks like it has a "tree" inside it) Love this!

This is pretty cool! Wish there was some kind of background though, and I'd prefer if it was blue. But it's a really nice piece asides from that.

Great job! I love to see the more realistic renderings in the Metroid universe.

Great job, are you going to do the other stages of the Metroid lifecycle (between this and Omega)? :)

I haven't decided yet, but I am considering it, would be interesting working on the other stages in this style...

Indeed, I'm especially interested in seeing your take on the Gamma Metroid.
